The Aesthetic Face of Being: Art in the Theology of Pavel Florensky

   
by Victor Bychkov
Translated from the Russian by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky
Preface by Robert Slesinski

“The full importance of the life and work of Father Pavel Florensky (1882–1937) for Russian philosophical and theological thought is only beginning to be adequately apprised in our own time. For too long, especially in the West, he has been consigned to obscurity. [...]This work is a faithful introduction to Florensky’s aesthetics and cannot but lead the reader to savor the beautiful as a primary datum, as one revelatory, i.e., symbolic, of the truth and goodness of being.”
